Pottukadala Chutney Recipe / Roasted Gram Chutney

This pottukadala Chutney can be made with or without coconut too. I like to add coconut for getting white color and togetherness. It is an awesome side dish for dosa and idli. It is commonly prepared for breakfast in South India.

Let’s see how to make coconut chutney following this easy recipe.
